    Many Seated Silvers, LA Pelican, and a TEXAS NAVY, Silver 1820s eyeglasses

    Hello All,

    I resisted the urge to post about this site for quite a while, because I wanted to keep it a bit of a secret. Well now that the field is planted, all bets are off on hunting it again. (I actually got one more hunt in right after I made this video, and dug a great find I'll post soon!) Well here it is, a ton of seated silver and some incredible buttons dug by my wife Diggergirl and my buddy Shane!



    Watch the video on this amazing site (it's long but worth it--one day I forgot my camera lol so there are some still photos in the middle of the video).

    So I'll just post photos of the finds below. My wife with one of the pocket full of minieballs we've dug!

    That, my friend, is a fantastic bunch of finds! Don't blame you for keeping this location under your hat. Love all of the seated coins. It's been a while since I've managed to swing my coil over one. Congratulations to you and Diggergirl.
